La Réunion Walking Tour with Kudu Travel

A Tropical Island in the Indian Ocean

This tropical département, set in the Indian Ocean between Madagascar and Mauritius, is one of France’s best kept secrets. Within the mother country, Réunion is acknowledged as a destination of outstanding natural beauty with a rich network of walking trails, but outside France little is known of the island. During the two week La Reunion walking tour you will discover many aspects of this uniquely hospitable and multicultural society.

You will walk in tropical forest; explore the moonscape of La Réunion’s active volcano, Piton de la Fournaise; swim and snorkel from a sand beach protected by offshore coral reefs and visit historic coffee and sugar estates, botanical gardens and museums depicting the island’s fascinating history.

Enjoy Creole and French cuisine accompanied by (perfectly stored) French wines while based in hotels ranging from an African style lodge in the hills on the east coast to beachfront Creole villas on the Lagoon set in gardens shaded by palm trees, and a former East India Company Palace in the centre of Réunion’s appealing capital, St Denis.

Highlights of the tour include:
  • Escaping November weather to a French jewel in the tropics
  • Walks in spectacular scenery of the island’s interior surrounded by forested peaks and cascading waterfalls
  • A day exploring the active volcano, Piton de la Fournaise, on foot
  • Visits to tropical gardens, historic estates and museums depicting the island’s history
